Dennis Rodman Claims He Asked Kim Jong Un To Release Otto Warmbier”

Rodman arrived in Pyongyang, North Korea the same day Pyongyang released Otto Warmbier, 22, the American college student who was released from prison last week and died soon after. "Later that day, that's when we found out he was ill, no one knew that. Some good things came out of this trip".

"These are the same kids who cry about their grades because they didn't think they'd really have to read and study the material to get a good grade".

U.S. Sen. Rob Portman, a Republican from the Cincinnati area, told reporters that North Korea must be held accountable for Warmbier's detention and death. Or, as NPR put it on February 29, 2016, immediately after North Korea first released Otto's "confession": "It's unclear whether Warmbier, 21, spoke of his own volition or whether he was pressured into making the statement".
